Awesome concert. I agree with one of the reviewers from the Radio City concert that some of the songs just reverberated through your chest like a lifebeat -- that may be the part that sticks with me the most. I thought the venue was pretty good, except that we were sitting by people who kept stepping over (and, a few times, on!) us to the concession stand 3, 4, 5 times during the concert, which was annoying and incomprehensible -- how they could not be glued to the stage like we were, I cannot understand. Telegraph Road was the highlight of a concert with no lows at all, and I've found that since hearing the songs live, I am really appreciating the Shangri-La tunes much more than before -- I guess the show literally brought those songs alive for me. All in all, this concert was almost as good as the one I saw with DS about 20 years ago in the (then) Felt Forum in NYC -- which is high praise, since that was the best concert I've seen by anyone anywhere. I hope he'll swing back through the eastern US on his way back to the UK -- in fact, I only found this excellent web site because I was looking (hoping!) for "second wind" tour information. No such luck on the tour info so far -- but a happy accident finding this site!

Great show, with all the songs played with an intensity one rarely sees. It is a nice venue with pretty good sound even though its a tent. The only drawback....long lines for the men's room!

As my 11 yr old son said, the show was "wickedly Awesome" I happened to have vacation planned in Boston (I live in Akron, Ohio), which gave me the opportunity to see MK. I went with my wife, 13 yr old nephew and son. It was the boys' first concert and what a treat it was. They had no idea what they were in for. I must admit that I have manipulated my son to love my favorites in music and MK is at the top. The whole atmosphere and performance were perfect. Re: the reviewer who saw them in Philly, I felt something special in their intensity and it is nice to know that we fans (I was very loud) had something to do with the band's energy and enjoyment. We got the better end of the deal. I got a little piece of heaven in Boston that night listening to a guitar master bard and his exceptional band. Thank you.

Mark and the Boys..... Thanks again for an unbelievable night. It was interesting to see how the crowd affected the band's enjoyment of the show. I saw them in Philly, and there was nowhere near the energy displayed by the audience (or the band, for that matter). You guys really do feed off the people, and it was great to see! Kudos to my Bostonians. I was treated to Shangi-La as the closing number, and walked away from the show in a trance. Please come back soon. P.S. .. I went to the show with a real rock n' roll veteran. His only comment after the show was " It couldn't get any better than that." Great job, boys!

WOW, where does one begin. What a night. Firstly, thank you Guy for keeping us informed of the bands perspective on the venues. It adds alot for your fans. Secondly, thank you Boston. We surely showed the Band a good time. I was at the Wolfe trap show, and in my humble opinion, we Bostonians blew those Washington DC pollys out of the water when it came to standing O's, clapping, cheering, singing and whistling. We were on our feet for over half the show. Not bad for a group with an average age of 50. I brought my 22 year old son and I'm sure he hasn't seen dear old dad that enthusiastic for a while!! I had to behave, but judging from an occaasional aroma wafting by, others didn't!! Speaking of aromas, it was a foggy night on Boston Harbor, and the venue being a tent set up we had the scent of the sea flowing through the seating. Really cool. Couldn't have been scripted any better. The only surprise might have been to have James Taylor (who lives in these parts) sing with Mark on "Sailing". But the last time he did that he forgot the words, so maybe not!!! A question for Guy: the Boston show was being video'd for the monitors. Any chance that could be released as a concert dvd, or on the web? A comment for the band. While its been stated on this site many times already,it bears repeating. Thank you. I can't imagine the many hassles of being on a tour like this, but do come again, and soon

Amazing stuff. Have been waiting for over 15 years to finally listen to MK live, and finally did. Venue was great. You could smell ocean water as the Pavilion's tent is oceanfront. I found the sound system for the Pavilion to be pretty good as well. MK honored us with 4 encores, the same ones he had done in New York. The audience went completely nuts, and came up with another long standing ovation after the 4 encores, until the lights were turned on, and attendants started making signs for the people to get the hell outta there. Mark and his band were exceptional. When you have listened to Dire Straits live, you always are going to fear that the new version of MK is not going to be good enough compared to the old DS stuff. Mark is probably aging like wine though. His guitar was better than ever, and his vocals pretty solid too. His band is pretty tight, and these guys really enjoy being with one another. An amazing night. Will be back here next time they show up.
